There are many type of anxiety disorders, with both common and unique symptoms. Anxiety can be brought on by a single stressful event or chronic difficult life experiences. Some of us are more prone to anxiety by our natural temperament and studies a family history in some cases. Treating anxiety starts with a thorough assessment to accurately diagnose and treat. Treatment is tailored to address you specific symptoms and usually involves cognitive behavioral therapy and/or medications. As a RN and therapist, I can assist with both assessment and treatment- in addition to medication management if needed. They symptoms of anxiety can be very dificult but the good news is that treatment works.

Anxiety and reaction to stress are the most common issues of the clients that we work with. Anxiety is often a habit of rehearsing bad events that will most likely not happen. The problem is that as we are "rehearsing" these possible events, our body is actually experiencing the event as if it is actually happening. This causes all sorts of physical and emotional responses, none of which are good for us or enjoyable. Our approach is to identify the habits that you have developed that cause you to feel anxious and find remedies for these habits. We offer online counseling, delivered to you wherever you are. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com

I know a lot about anxiety. A great deal of what I know is because of what I have experienced personally. As a result of my personal experience I have a great deal of passion about helping others. I have also learned a great deal about what goes on in one's thinking, behavior and emotions as a result of anxiety. I know there is hope and I can teach this to you. I will teach you about the neurophysiological underpinnings of anxiety and how the brain can actually be "rewired" by distinct changes in how one approaches one's thinking, behavior in day-to-day situations. I give practical homework that will help you get relief and likely even from the first session.

My approach to managing anxiety is twofold. I first evaluate your situation & understand the external factors that impact you. Next we design and implement a plan to address those factors. Skills like assertiveness, and limit setting may be used to deal with the external stressors. The second thing we do is increase your coping skills. We can use specific behavioral plans, changing self-talk, letting go, and using social supports to increase your resiliency. Stress reduction methods such as meditation, exercise, spiritual resources, and breathing exercises may be used. With time and some effort, you will find that your self-doubt and anxiety will be replaced will confidence & self-esteem.

Everyone experiences anxiety in life. But when it becomes too much, it saps the very life out of us and causes our quality of life to suffer. This is where action needs to be taken and you must proactively find a therapist who can help you learn effective anxiety management techniques. People who suffer from anxiety often just take medication and fail to utilize proven anxiety reduction methods. The approach I use is to help clients learn how to calm the physiological reactions to anxiety while actively changing the negative thought patterns of worry and fearful thinking. Anxiety is an ingrained pattern of responding to stress which you can hange!

Anxiety and stress can have an impact on all aspects of our lives. When they are at appropriate levels, they can be helpful, but when they are too present, problems arise. I help people who come to see me identify how much stress is too much, and provide tools they can use to manage more effectively. I use brain based science and mindfulness techniques to help reduce the negative impact anxiety and stress have on people's lives.

I'll help you learn how to manage anxiety and stress so they don't feel so overwhelming. Some people are genetically "wired" to be more anxious or vulnerable to stress and worry. Loss and difficult experiences also contribute to a heightened state of anxiety. Understanding the sources of your anxiety and stress, and connecting with thoughts and behaviors that enhance your internal sense of well-being will allow you to live with anxiety or stress rather than feeling over-run by them. I teach mindfulness and relaxation techniques as part of reducing anxiety and managing stress.

If you are experiencing stress and anxiety, then you know what a self-fueling cycle it can be - the endless worries, telling yourself you "just need to try harder," the frustration that comes when nothing you do seems to be make a dent in your stress level, leading to physical tension that causes you to feel like you can't get a deep breath or a good night's sleep. And then you worry and beat up on yourself even more. But please know that stress and anxiety respond really well to therapy! You and I will work together to figure out where to break into that cycle and how to do it quickly and most effectively. Often clients experience significant symptom reduction in 5 sessions or less.

Anxiety has a tremendous impact on the people that struggle with it, as well as the people around them. It saps the energy from their life. Anxiety is fear. Anxiety focuses on the future. In therapy, we try to identify what the fear is and how best to work through it. There are a number of different treatment approaches including talk therapy, exposure therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Somatic Experiencing (SE).

Living with stress and anxiety is hard on our bodies. At their worst, they cause tense muscles and shallow breathing. At their worst, they can cause high blood pressure and other physical problems. First, you and I will explore where you feel stress and anxiety in your body and then you'll learn relaxation tools and healthy self-talk so that you can feel in control rather than out of control.

Everyone feels anxiety and stress sometimes. But, when it starts to feel overwhelming, exhausting, unrelenting, and limiting, I can help. My approach is one of curiosity and compassion. I explore why anxiety and stress have become apart of you. What adaptive function did they originally serve for you? Are they present to protect you from fear of future failure or pain? Once we acknowledge and understand their original purpose, we work on finding new meaning for these defense mechanisms, and eventually let them go.
